Legendary Hong Kong film producer Raymond Chow, who introduced the world to Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, has died at age 91.

Lee's three pictures for Chow's Golden Harvest production house each broke Hong Kong box office records.

Chan's action-comedies made him a superstar in Asia, and Chow invested in introducing Chan to Western audiences.

Chow credited a "gut feeling" for his decision later to bring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the big screen.

The movie was a worldwide smash.

Hong Kong secretary for commerce and economic development, Edward Yau, said in a statement on Friday that Chow helped nurture a pool of Hong Kong talent and brought them to the international stage.

"We are most grateful for his great contribution to the development of the Hong Kong film industry," Yau's statement said.
